Twitter and Sonic.net took top scores in a new Electronic Freedom Foundation (EFF) report rating tech companies' stewardship of users' personal data and their willingness to hand over data to the government. The two companies got high marks on each of the EFF's six privacy best practices categories, which include things like "require a warrant for content," "tell users about government data demands," and "publish transparency reports."


On the other end of the scale were Verizon, AT&T and Apple. Verizon failed to get a star in even one category, while AT&T and Apple earned just one apiece.
